Burnis is a phoenix-like enemy seen in Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards, often flying around warm, volcanic regions. While flying, they drop pellets of fire made only to injure Kirby, and provide him with the Fire copy ability when ingested. Their ice counterpart is Frigis.
Burnis will usually move back and forth over a set area, dropping fire at random intervals or at Kirby if he is near. It does not pursue Kirby actively and will merely continue along its path with no regard for his location.
Burnis resembles a baby chick, except that its entire body is comprised of fire, save for its beak and eyes.
